The Smurfs – First look at Hank Azaria as Gargamel

Posted by LiveFor on May 1, 2010

Smurfin’ Hell! Still not excited about a Smurf’s film, but I think the kids will love it. They seem to have the look right for it so far.

In the 3D August 3, 2011 release, the evil wizard Gargamel chases the tiny blue Smurfs out of their village and they tumble from their magical world into ours – in the middle of Central Park. Just three apples high and stuck in the Big Apple, the Smurfs must find a way to get back to their village before Gargamel tracks them down.

The cast includes Neil Patrick Harris (Johan), Jayma Mays, Sofia Vergara (Odile-Johan’s wife), Anton Yelchin (Clumsy Smurf), Jonathan Winters (Papa Smurf), Katy Perry (Smurfette), Alan Cumming (Gutsy Smurf), Fred Armisen (Brainy Smurf), George Lopez (Grouchy Smurf), and Paul Reubens (Jokey Smurf).

Paul Reubens voicing Bat-Mite

Posted by LiveFor on May 29, 2009


MTV have the news that Batman: The Brave and the Bold has an upcoming episode called Legends of the Dark Mite – Batman will face one of the greatest Bat-characters in the history of the Bat-universe: Bat-Mite.

An imp from the 5th Dimension Bat-Mite kidnaps his caped hero bringing Batman back to the imp’s uber-trippy home dimension for a series of surreal adventures through the wackier side of the hero’s history.

The episode was scripted by Lost writer Paul Dini, and features a Bat-Mite voiced by Paul “Pee Wee Herman” Reubens.

Batman-On-Film had these clips and pics along with lots more.

Navigator takes flight again.

Posted by LiveFor on May 26, 2009

After redoing Witch Mountain it looks as if Disney are enjoying the remake trail with the news that they are going to redo Flight of the Navigator according to The Hollywood Report.

Brad Copeland (Wild Hogs) is writing the remake, but no director is currently attached.

The 1986 original told the story of a 12-year-old boy who is abducted by an alien spacecraft in 1978 and reappears eight years later, still the same age and with no memory of what happened. NASA scientists discover a connection between the boy and a downed spacecraft and try to exploit the boy, who ultimately escapes with the ship and attempts to reunite with his family.

It starred a young Sarah Jessica Parker and Paul Reubens as the voice of Max, the robotic pilot of the alien ship.

As I kid I loved this film. The spacecraft had a great design. I also bought it for my son a couple of years ago and he enjoyed it, especially the aliens on board the ship.

The movie grossed only $17 million when it was released but was later rediscovered on VHS, becoming a cult hit.

Yet another remake and another one that makes me wonder why bother. Why not go for an original story?

Do you remember the original? Should it be remade? Who should voice the ship? How could the original story be improved?
